Young people fight climate change

Following the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen last month, over 250 young people came together this week to explore ways in which they can join the fight against climate change.

The UK Youth Parliament event at the British Museum saw 11 to 25-year-olds from across the country take the fight into their own hands and map out the changes that need to be made over the next 100 years in order to tackle climate change.
Ed Miliband, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (pictured with, left to right, Jack Taylor, 17, Aakash Bharania, 16, Annie Pickering, 15) attended the event on 12 January along with Oxfam, Plan UK, UK Youth Climate Coalition and UNICEF. They were joined by playwright and broadcaster Bonnie Greer and Dr Chris Tuppen (BT), named by The Guardian newspaper as one of 50 people who could save the planet from environmental disaster.
